Paul and Pat Weiler Memorial Scholarship established at Garrett College

Paul and Pat

The Garrett College Foundation recently announced the formation of the Paul and Pat Weiler Memorial Scholarship, established by an anonymous donor. The purpose of the scholarship fund is to provide support for a graduate of either Northern or Southern High School in Garrett County who is enrolled at Garrett College.

The late Paul W. Weiler began his service as a member of the Garrett College Foundation Board in 2014, in which he was elected treasurer of the Foundation and served as a member of the Executive Committee. He also taught as an adjunct professor at the College, as he had more than 45 years’ experience in audit and program management with Lockheed Martin, along with several industry credentials and knowledge of consulting.

Outside of his involvement with the Foundation, he was very connected and actively engaged in his community through the Garrett Lakes Arts Festival (GLAF), the Deep Creek Watershed Foundation, and the Property Owners’ Association of Deep Creek Lake.

A life-long learner and traveler, the late Pat A. Weiler was a natural teacher and very curious about the world. Her independence and adventurous spirit took her to Cuba, Europe, and to a Pennsylvania ski resort. It was during this last trip that she met her husband and partner for life, Paul W. Weiler.

Having obtained her bachelor's degree from Newark State Teachers College and a master's degree from Seaton Hall, Pat taught disadvantaged youth in a Newark elementary school. In addition to being a dedicated mother, she also taught elementary school at Annunciation Catholic and the National Presbyterian Schools. In her spare time, she enjoyed playing bridge and discussing books with her neighbors and close friends.

Pat and Paul have a daughter and son-in-law, Judith Ann and Sean Casey, and a son and daughter-in-law, David Joseph Weiler and Leslie Bellas. From 1998 through 2003, they welcomed the birth of four grandchildren, Alexander Weiler, Nicholas Casey, Katharine Weiler, and Elle Casey. For several years, Pat had weekly "Grammy Days" for each grandchild and ran a one-week "Camp Laurel" for her grandchildren at their home on Deep Creek Lake. Together, they were members of the cycling group, the Chain Gang, and the Deep Creek Lake Yacht Club. Prior to relocating to the Deep Creek Lake area, they lived in Houston, Texas and Potomac, Md.
